Alcohol and Other Drug Programs
Alcohol and Other Drug Counseling is an opportunity to explore your overall health and well being, in relation to personal use of alcohol/drugs, or in relation to someone else's use of alcohol/drugs. Counseling is a confidential, supportive place to discuss what is happening in your life, with a professional who will:
- Promote autonomy
- Be caring
- Help you be objective
- Provide helpful, factual information
- Be nonjudgmental
- Explore alternatives
AOD counseling can be a single session consultation, short term (2 to 6 sessions), or longer depending on the goals you want to accomplish. These sessions will help you address troubling experiences or feelings, and can be used to support changes you wish to make in your life. The demands of college life are stressful at times, and AOD counseling can give you a better chance to learn more about yourself and how you can succeed academically and in your personal life.
